    Expect to fork over some more dough while traveling through Delaware.

    Make sure to grab that extra change if you are traveling through Delaware this weekend.

    DelDOT is set to raise its toll prices an extra $1 on the weekends for commuters along the busy Route 1 -- a popular route to the Delaware Beaches and campgrounds. The weekend toll rate was already $1 higher than during the week.

    The revenue from the price hike will be used to fund paving and other transportation projects statewide.

    The tool for cars will remain at $1 during the week then increase to $3 from 7 p.m. Friday to 11 p.m. Sunday.

    Delaware E-ZPass customers will still continue to receive current discount rates.
